On May 20th, I celebrated my birthday in a Chinese club.

Really cool memories : Canadian guys making up karaoke songs and getting the crowd to sing along. Hot hip hop track at midnight for my birthday. An entire club singing happy birthday to me!

TIGER LEAPING GORGE

A 2 or 3 day-trek in dangerous Chinese gorges! You really need to watch out for the landslides and sleepery stones.

I thought I'd be a piece of cake compared to the Trek in Nepal but it really wasn't. It was crazy difficult going down .

Going down then up was a real adventure. We had to climb an endless amont of stonestep, ladders, take ropeways and finally climb up a huge landslides.

Spent two days with a nice German couple, Sebastian und Effa.

Effa is writing her final paper on journalism freedom and Beijing while Sebastian worked for Siemens in Shanghai for three months.

Meet a few genuine people from the Naxi minority. This is not like the tourist-orientex Naxi show you get in town .

This is the other face of China, far from skyscrapers and Carrefour supermarkets.

Coucou Wale!!
Je vois que ton voyage continue sans souci :-)
De retour à 'tianjin-une-des-4-plus-grandes-villes-de-chine', la vie est nettement moins marrante qu'à dos de cheval dans le sichuan mais bon; surprise aussi (agréablement ;-)) de me retrouver sur le récit de jiuzhaigou (ma soeur est Maÿlis, sa coloc Sophie en passant, mais avec tant de filles je comprends que tu perdes le fil...)!! c'était bien sympa en tout cas cette soirée borchette; si tu passes toujours par pékin, n'hésite pas à faire signe!!
bonne route!!
